Have you heard of the trendy new recipe called Egg Nests? We place an egg yolk on top of an egg white mixture that's light and fluffy...just like a cloud! This simple breakfast recipe is easy enough to make on any morning, or to impress guests with.

What You'll Need

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons grated Swiss cheese

What to Do

  1. Place oven rack in center of oven and preheat to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Separate egg yolks from whites and place whites in a medium bowl. Keep each egg yolk in a separate bowl.
  3. Add salt to egg whites and beat with an electric mixer starting on low speed and increasing to high speed, until stiff peaks form. Gently fold in cheese, making sure not to deflate egg whites.
  4. Create 2 mounds of the egg white mixture on prepared baking sheet so they look like nests, with indentations in the centers.
  5. Bake 3 minutes, then gently add egg yolk to center of each nest and bake 3 more minutes, or until desired doneness of yolk. Serve immediately.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

The trend may be new, but the recipe has been around for many years. Because i don't like to have the yolk uncovered, I like to sprinkle a bit more grated cheese over it. We like to use cheddar cheese and serve with salsa.

UGH!! I'm diabetic and the picture turned my stomach.

I love this idea. So cute and simple and tasty!
